My brand has been with me since the end of my Entertainment Business Master's program in 2010. I can't believe it has been a decade since the name came to me. I started this brand at a time when my weight was about the highest it has even been. I remember looking at a picture of myself getting ready for graduation and feeling disgusted at how I had let myself go. But my time as a choreographer for liturgical dance inside the church was not helping to pay the bills. So I said hey, I need to lose weight, I love choreography, so let me blend the two.
But my journey was not easy. And I have to admit, I could care less for being a fitness instructor. I was certified in 2011 right before I came to Atlanta. I struggled through my time in Atlanta trying to bring the concept as America's First Plus Size Fitness Instructor to life. I taught classes, I made videos, I endorsed the Cordless Jumprope as our favorite jump rope, I had a special on People TV here in Atlanta, but at the end of the day... It just did not work. I was trying to wear a title that did not fit who I was. So in 2017 I allowed my certification to lapse. I stopped making videos. I ended up getting pregnant. But at the end of the day, I did not give up fitness. As a matter of fact it became easier.
I recently strolled through my gym pics over the years and I realize that I just love strutting my stuff in the mirror. I love to look good and feel good. Going to the gym made me feel great! Stretching in the aerobics room and doing circuit training routines with my Cordless Jump Rope gave me such a high while the responsibility of certifications became my burden. So I decided while I was pregnant, I'm no longer throwing energy to those things that I have to struggle with. If it does not fit, I must QUIT! Life is too short to be stuck in a place that does not work for you. What flows it where you want to go... Muah! Do more of what you love!
I've been a lot of places,
